I don't hear classical in Bacharach at all. Be Bop, yes. And, otherwise, pure pop.

You gotta admit though, Tony Orlando & Dawn's cover of He Don't Love You is much more soulful and melodic than the original version. Just my opinion by the way.

I like how you slipped Gershwin in there, F16C. Me? I hear Raspberries. Shostakovich?! Huh?! Not by a million miles. Now, BB is a fan of sour harmonies a la Prokofiev, but he wrote *songs*, two, three minute exercises in rhythm and cadence. He also wrote those instrumental tunes that ended up featured as intros or outros on TV. Even those exhibit no ambitions beyond occupying a few minutes. I love Bacharach, but classical he ain't.

F1600, any chance we'll be hearing Bacharach's version of Mexican Divorce?

Not his own. The Drifters version is coming up

i was out of the room. i'm sure i would know the music from abc's movie of the week, which one of my sisters always watched.

Dean:

I think what I love about Burt's version of MD is the sense that it is about *divorce*, nothing more or less. Cover versions are too lyrical, too song-like. Burt's version manages to deliver song and discourse in exquisite measure. "One day married, the next day free..." Love and anti-love described, almost explained.

A House Is Not got repurposed for an 80s Broadway revival of Promises. Fran sings it when the boss leaves her in the apartment on Christmas. It really doesn't fit the situation, but what the hell.
